    DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s air defenses were activated on Friday when Israel fired missiles at targets in central Syria, igniting a fire in farmlands in the area, state media reported. The official news agency SANA said the missiles were fired at the central town of Masyaf in the Hama countryside, adding that several of them were shot down. There was no immediate mention of casualties. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Syria war monitor, said Israeli aircraft fired at least eight missiles that struck weapons depots and sites belonging to Iranian militias in the Masyaf area, which led to several fires. Ambulances were seen rushing to the area, it added. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military on the attack, which the Observatory said was the 12th Israeli attack on Syrian territory since the beginning of the year. The Observatory has a network of activists on the ground in Syria. Israel has staged hundreds of strikes on targets in Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations.

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard fired more than a dozen surface-to-surface ballistic missiles, the official IRNA news agency reported on Friday. The report said the Guard fired 16 missiles during an ongoing major military exercise across the country’s south. It said the name of missiles were Emad, Ghadr, Sejjil, Zalzal, Dezful and Zolfaghar and that their range is from 350 to 2000 kilometers (220 to 1250 miles). The short-range and medium-range missiles, Iran has said, can reach U.S. bases in the region as well as archenemy Israel. It said the missiles successfully hit one target at the same time as 10 drones simultaneously hit their targets. State TV showed missiles launching in the desert. Iran had displayed and test fired the missiles in the past. Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, the chief of staff of Iran’s Armed Forces, said the planned drill was an answer to Israel’s recent “massive but pointless threats” to Iran. Bagheri said, “This was a tiny part of hundreds of missiles that can hit any hostile target simultaneously.” Israel has long seen Iran’s...
    BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian state media said the country’s air defenses responded Saturday to missiles fired from Israel toward suburbs of the capital Damascus. State TV gave no further details about the missile attack. Israeli attacks on Syria have mostly happened during nighttime. Saturday’s strikes came days after Syria accused Israel of carrying out an attack in the country’s south, without offering details. Israel has launched hundreds of strikes against Iran-linked military targets in Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations. Israel has acknowledged it is targeting bases of Iran-allied militias, such as the powerful Lebanese militant Hezbollah group. It is going after arms shipments believed to be bound for the group. Hezbollah is fighting on the side of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in the civil war. Israel views Iranian entrenchment on its northern frontier as a red line, and it has repeatedly struck Iran-linked facilities and weapons convoys destined for Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group.

    BEIRUT (AP) — Israel fired several missiles early on Monday targeting areas near the Syrian capital, Damascus, Syria’s state news agency reported. An opposition war-monitoring group said the strikes killed six Iran-backed fighters.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor with a network of activists on the ground, said the strikes hit positions of the Syrian army’s Fourth Division in the mountains near the highway that links Damascus with the Lebanese capital of Beirut.

    The Telegraph Israel ‘launches attack in Syria’ after low-flying planes terrify Beirut residents Israel was reported to have launched air strikes against military targets in Syria last night, after war planes flew low over Lebanon, terrifying local residents. The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) quoted a military source blaming Israeli “aggression” for launching a “barrage of missiles” from the north of the Lebanese city of Tripoli towards Masyaf, in Syria’s Hama province. The source claimed that most of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defences, but the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based war monitor, said that a warehouse and missile factories had been destroyed, with “at least” six casualties. Explosions were reported after midnight in the area around Masyaf, north-west of Homs, which is a significant military area for President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, containing a military academy and scientific research centre believed to have been used to create chemical weapons. The Israeli military said it would not comment on reports in foreign media, but it has allegedly launched dozens of attacks against Iranian militias and other...
    DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A Syrian military official said Israel’s military fired missiles Monday night on areas south of the capital Damascus. The unnamed military official gave no further details adding that Syrian air defenses opened fire on “hostile targets.” It was not clear what the targets were but state TV said the strikes were carried by warplanes flying Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

In the past three months alone, Syria has accused Israel of carrying out at least eight air raids on its territory. The last reported strikes came on July 20. Iran is a key ally of the Syrian government in the nearly decade-long civil...
    Israel's Defense Ministry said Thursday it conducted a successful test of the country's advanced missile defence system against long-range ballistic attacks.

The test was conducted overnight in central Israel, jointly with the U.S. Missile Defence Agency. Arrow-2 is part of the multi-layered system Israel has developed to defend against both short- and mid-range rockets fired from Gaza and Lebanon, as well as Iran's long-range missiles.  Israel's Arrow-2 missile interceptor is seen during a test of the system at a site in central Israel, according to Israel Missile Defense Organization in the Ministry of Defense and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency August 12, 2020 A test of Israel's Arrow-2 missile interceptor system is seen at a site in central Israel, according to Israel Missile Defense Organization in the Ministry of Defense and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency yesterday RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
